OUR RESEARCH IN SCOTLAND

Last year, we spent over £31 million on some of the UK's best scientific and clinical research in Scotland

Our Cancer Research UK Centres in Edinburgh and Glasgow are bringing together experts in the local medical and scientific community - working in partnership to translate research into benefits for patients as quickly as possible.

YOUR LOCAL CENTRE - GLASGOW

We spent over £22 million last year in Glasgow on some of the UK's best scientific and clinical research.

An exciting programme of work has been established at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute to seek out potential drug targets and develop cancer drug treatments of the future.

YOUR LOCAL CENTRE - EDINBURGH

We spent over £4 million last year in Edinburgh on some of the UK's best scientific and clinical research

In fact, Edinburgh is one of our major hubs for research, bringing together scientists, doctors and nurses from across the city. Our team here are ready, able and equipped to take on cancer and help more people beat the disease.

OUR RESEARCHERS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO MOST OF THE TOP CANCER DRUGS

WE WORK TOGETHER ACROSS THE UK

Our researchers in Birmingham developed a new drug, temozolomide

We tested it in a phase I clinical trial at Charing Cross Hospital in London

Our researchers in Glasgow developed the process to make bigger batches of the drug

We ran phase II trials at different locations across the UK

Larger clinical trials were run around the world by Schering-Plough

THE NUMBERS

Every day, 83 people are diagnosed with cancer in Scotland

Half of them will not beat their disease

Research being carried out all over the UK will help bring forward the day when all of them will
